The UK is a global leader in life sciences and healthcare innovation. Through our strong foundations and heritage, we continue to push the boundaries of scientific discovery. This is made possible by the unique collaborative ecosystem we have built, spanning the NHS, academia, industry and policy. With our talent, institutions and proven track record, we are in a unique position to partner and deliver breakthroughs with the high standard you get from the UK.

• Our biotech sector is thriving and on track for record-breaking investment this year. These companies are filling the pipeline and developing cutting edge products, technologies and services.
• We are looking for innovative partnerships to deliver the future of healthcare, from precision medicine to advances in population health and prevention, and to improve manufacturing and health resilience.
• We are advancing global life sciences, leading the way in genomics research and integration into clinical care, with a national genomic medicine service and discovery platform.
• Our Future Health will collect information from millions of volunteers to create one of the most detailed pictures we’ve ever had of people’s health, to make new discoveries and to transform the prevention, detection and treatment of dementia, cancer, diabetes, heart disease and stroke.
• No matter your life sciences ‘personality’, there is a place for you in the UK and we’ll help you find it – connecting with the people, partners and UK landing locations to achieve your vision, all in one of the world’s best places to do business.
